Stories from the City of Hong Kong
by Xu Xi
From the turbulent sixties through the nineties, here is a "history" of Hong Kong, told through fiction by one of the city's leading writers. These stories represent the evolution of a voice, as she strives to create art out of her birthplace, "the city that remains my perpetual concern." History intrudes into private lives and more in the thirteen tales, collected here for the first time. The volume includes several new, never previously published pieces.
